How can the major types of kidney stones (calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate, uric acid, struvite, or cystine) be induced in an animal model?

I have noted in my research on this topic that calcium stones can be generated by orally supplying rats with a .75% ethylene glycol solution for about a month https://www.researchgate.net/post/What_is_the_best_way_to_induce_kidney_stone_in_rats Also, other articles confirm only state a means to generate calcium stones, but never the other types of stones. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3615905/
